Eleven schools are targeted for intervention, which may include mergers or staff overhauls. Community meetings at each school to work on plans will start next week. In a related development, the Philadelphia School Partnership awarded a $1.1 million grant to Roxborough High.
In last meeting of school year, it also takes action on several charter matters and codifies the role of School Advisory Councils.
In an application to the school's board, Mastery said it would only take over the school if the K-8 is scaled back to a K-6.
It also passed a fiscal 2016-17 budget with money for at least one nurse and counselor in every school.
Wister turned over to Mastery. Great Oaks pulls out of Cooke. No votes on the nonrenewal proposals for Audenried, Vare, Olney and Stetson. And, oh yes, District hires Kelly to provide substitute services.
At the meeting, two charter schools were renewed, and three Mastery charter renewals were withdrawn to work out legal issues.
Councilwoman Helen Gym is calling for a moratorium on charter conversions. The SRC will consider four Renaissance non-renewal recommendations.
